I gave this one an extra star, since your will need to place some gear. Start just right of B.A.H. Clip a couple bolts on your way to a fun crack system. A few small to medium cam placements will lead you to a final bolt and the anchors.


It shares anchors with B.A.H.


3 bolts and a fistful of cams to 2 inches....

I took just nuts with me. I found two obvious bomber placements that perfectly divided up the runout.

I found the cam placements fiddley, a combo of medium nuts and cams might be best. Fun route.
